man this looks pasted togather, but in a way that is enjoyable, like those nature documentaries of that german guy from midewest who lived in alaska 40 forty years - alone in the wilderness!! that's the name. or like industiral films that get to the point and move one. or like . .

mitchum is fabulous. some very scary moments, like when mitchum come to collect the kids from lillian gish.

laughton told mitchum to direct the kids because he didnt like kids. mitchum shouldnt have directed kids because they almost ruin film with their bad acting. robert graves of mission impossinb;e and airplane fame has role as father of kids, and man he gives awful performance too!

pretty good for laughton's only stab at driecting!!

polanski "stars" in this one and he's not half bad as actor, but he brilliant behind the camera!

here polasnki start that comic tone you would continue to see throughout the rest of his movies.

this is one of his best, some scary moments, some funny moments, and very cinematic.

great atmosphere! this waa actually my favorite movie for some time, not just favorite horror movie.

you can pass on the book; it sucks.

this is one example of movie being superior to novel.

may be polanski best!!

i put this on here for same reason repulsion. i dont remember liking it all that much, but i havent forgotten it either.

i think one of the benefits of being competent at your craft, is that you can make an imprint on audiences even if your film not that good.

the cream of crop!

horror probably my favorite genre, and i seen many horror films so i am expert on what is good. these movies range in quality from "more than watchable" to "masterpieces."

not a big fan of hammer horror and old italian horror so many titles that you think should be here aren't, like village of the damned, suspiria, etc.
